"Dear Ancestor"

Your tombstone stands among the rest;
Neglected and alone.
The name and date are chiseled out
On polished, marbled stone.

It reaches out to all who care
It is too late to mourn.
You did not know that I exist
You died and I was born.

Yet each of us are cells of you
In flesh, in blood, in bone.
Our blood contracts and beats a pulse
Entirely not our own.

Dear Ancestor, the place you filled
One hundred years ago
Spreads out among the ones you left
Who would have loved you so.

I wonder if you lived and loved,
I wonder if you knew
That someday I would find this spot,
And come to visit you.

This is my husbands family, we have wanted to know where she was born for a long time. Can you tell me how you know? Are you connected to this family?

Albert Lewis "Lewis" Bevard
In your request for me to change the name of his name "Provard" to Bevard, I can not do this. It is exactly like was written in his obituary and the way the Coal Mine wrote their report. When I enter the obituaries, I put them exactly as written.

Good question. It was always just the initial J. But somewhere back in time I found information that listed his middle name as Jordahl. Unfortunately, I didn't note where that information came from. I got his birth certificate to see if it was on there, but it was just J. In the '60s Lyle modified his birth certificate. The only thing we can think of is that he changed his middle name legally from Jordahl to J. I guess we'll never know for sure. For now...it's just "J."
